Black screen on closure of X


Hi

I'm running 14.1 and AlienBob's KDE 4.11.3 packages plus multi-lib.

There is small problem on logout, restart, or turn off. I get about ten seconds of black screen before X finally exits, but ctrl,alt, backspace restarts X in about two seconds. This happens for all users.

Is anyone else seeing this?

UPDATE:

su -c halt and reboot take X down in about 2 seconds, the same as ctrl, alt, backspace.

This would suggest a KDE problem.

Any ideas how to track this down.

FURTHER UPDATE:

Halting from login prompt (KDM) takes computer to scrolling text in about two seconds.

Is your session manager attempting to save its session data as part of shutdown?

Not as far as I know, session manager is set to start an empty session.

One good thing about this is that I have found and fixed two or three other problems because of it.

OK appears to be fixed. I installed an earlier version of the NVIDIA driver.

Gazl added this in another thread
Quote:
Nvidia added libEGL in the new version of the driver, but only on 32bit. On 64bit you get a warning: something about it being unable to determine the architecture for conflict testing (I would have expected the 'lib64' to be a fairly blatant clue, but whatever...). The driver actually installs, but removes libEGL.la, while leaving mesa's libEGL.so still in-place. What I'm not sure about is whether the appropriate action is to put the .la file back, or to also remove the libEGL.so that belongs to mesa and was left behind. Thankfully, I don't think there's much that actually uses it as yet, so it's not an urgent issue. I expect NVIDIA will get their act together and fix it sooner or later (probably later ).
So I downgraded to 325.15
